This is one of those moments when you realize that the moral scolds on the right not only have no imagination, they have no self-awareness. Let’s zip ahead to the 30:45 mark on this interview with noted homophobe Peter LaBarbera as he is asked a question about the new Star Trek series that will feature the first same-sex couple in the franchise’s history:
“We have yet to see an ex-gay, a former homosexual prominently portrayed in Hollywood.”
You know, maybe it has something to do with, oh, you know, THERE ARE NO EX-GAYS. And as for Star Trek, the whole ethos of the series is optimism: somehow we survive the present and the future is bright. That might have something to do with it, Peter.
